FAO(OS) 15/2015

1. The appellant, defendant in the suit, has filed the present appeal
impugning the order dated 15.10.2014, whereby the learned Single
Judge has confirmed the ad interim order dated 27.05.2013, by which
order the appellant had been restrained from using the trademark
“WORLD BOOK” or any other mark that is deceptively similar to the
plaintiff’s registered trademark “WORLD BOOK” in respect of
printing/publishing of books and other reference materials and
educational products either in print or in software version as also on
their website. By the said order, the learned Single Judge has held
that use of the words “WORLD BOOK” as part of the corporate name
and use of the domain name “” is likely to
cause confusion and deception.
